Ok, so I have been crushing on Nate Parker for a minute now. You may remember him from The Great Debaters and The Secret Life of Bees. Well, his new project “Birth of a Nation” just killed it and made history at Sundance Film Festival. With a winning bid for $17.5 million dollars by Fox Searchlight, “Birth of a Nation” just set a record for the biggest deal and that wasn’t even the highest bid. Parker is the producer, director, writer and stars in this film that takes us on a journey of Nate Turner, a slave who led a historic rebellion in Virginia. Nate Parker better work! I can’t wait to see this movie!
